Shane Warne

116 Upvotes

As an Australian I am extremely embarrassed to have Shane Warne represent us as an international commentator. Yes from now and then he gives the audience an amazing insight into the game with his knowledge and experience. But 95% of the time he goes for purposely controversial and clickbaity anecdotes, often trying to create a headline out of nothing. Leading up to this Ashes series he's been head-hunting Mitch Starc obsessively. Questioning his position in the team and his ability to perform at the top level. That all came crashing down this morning as Starc rocketed the ball into Burns' leg stump. That should've been it from warnie but instead he tries to downplay the delivery for the ensuing 10 minutes, first trying to claim the ball didn't swing late, that it was a poor delivery and that it didn't deserve a wicket, with each of these points being met with disagreement from his fellow commentator's.

This man was magical to watch play and I am so glad I got to see him play as it was one of the reasons I fell in love with the game. It's such a shame at who he is now as a has been who tries to stay relevent by making headlines where they aren't any to keep his name in the spotlight. And it sucks as an Aussie that he represents us like that

Athar's commentary during the BanVSPak series.

104 Upvotes

It had to be the most biased and awful commentary in the history of cricket. When Bangladesh bats, he only talks about the batters, and ignores the bowler and the fielders. When bangladesh bowls, he talks about the bowlers and fielders and completely ignores the batters. There was in this post in this sub where a clip was shown where Mushy got rekt by a bouncer, but Athar praised it as a "wonderful defense". Pakistanis were so pissed of at Athar that one of them told me that "Athar" has become and adjective for bad commentary.

Pakistan won by an innings and 8 runs

Babar Azam: "Definitely [enjoying my bowling]. I had a feeling I should have a bowl here, and I ended up getting my first wicket. The way our batsmen played, the openers, the middle order, and even though we lost time to rain, our mindset was to dominate, and the way Sajid bowled, that brought us into the game and gave us momentum. The fast bowlers did very well, and Alhamdulillah we won the match. The groundstaff prepared the wicket very well and covered the ground and ensured we got enough time for the result, I really appreciate their efforts. We always get confidence from victories, and these are crucial points. We always enter the ground with the mindset to win matches, and it wasn't just about one or two players, it was the effort of all the boys."

Abid Ali, the player of the series: "This wasn't a batting track, ball was turning, both here and in the last match. Our target was to play positively and play to win. All the senior players and staff backed the players. Our effort is to play with positive body language through this World Test Championship. I got a lot of confidence from my last domestic season, and I brought that here."

Sajid Khan, the player of the match: "The captain, vice-captain and the team trusted me, and Allah gave me this success. The plan was to go for the win, and we tried to keep it tight and bowl on one spot. The entire team gets credit for their effort."

Mominul Haque: "We had an opportunity to do better than the first innings today, and we had some very promising performances from Shakib, Liton and Mushfiq, but in the end we could not complete the job. If you've lost the first 2-3 wickets, it's very difficult to get back in the game. We have a lot of work to do at No. 1, 2, 3 and 4. Liton played very well in Chittagong and here, hope he can continue that performance."
